Coolant "leak" caused possible pump failure???

Well, good day went to bad...

Having Homelink installed today by Tesla mobile service, got it working, took it for a quick test to open upon arrival, works great, but noticed blue fluid flowing out from under the car...

Luckily, the mobile service was still "close by" so flagged him down. He found a hose had fallen off the coolant pump, likely not connected completely at the factory. Added fluid, but doesn't sound right, and no longer cooling, power limited, etc...

Service guy said they see about 1 in 10 with these connections incorrectly seated, but usually coming off the transport truck, not after nearly 300 miles by the owner...

So, it's heading for the service center on a tow truck tonight...
